Can Hispanic babies have blue eyes?
Babies of African, Hispanic and Asian descent are often born with dark irises (brown or black) that stay dark. Caucasian babies often have gray or blue eyes at birth. It takes time for the melanocytes in their eyes to produce melanin and for the iris to become the color it was destined to be.
What ethnicity has blue eyes?
Blue eyes are most common in Europe, especially Scandinavia. People with blue eyes have the same genetic mutation that causes eyes to produce less melanin. The mutation first appeared in a person living in Europe about 10,000 years ago. That individual is a common ancestor of all blue-eyed people today.
Do all Caucasian babies have blue eyes at birth?
While only 1 in 5 Caucasian adults have blue eyes in the United States, most are born blue-eyed. Their irises change from blue to hazel or brown during infancy.
Are blue eyes from inbreeding?
However, the gene for blue eyes is recessive so you’ll need both of them to get blue eyes. This is important as certain congenital defects and genetic diseases, such as cystic fibrosis, are carried by recessive alleles. Inbreeding stacks the odds of being born with such conditions against you.
Are blue eyes becoming rare?
Blue eyes are indeed becoming less common in the world. One study showed that about 100 years ago, half of U.S. residents had blue eyes. Nowadays only 1 in 6 does. In the past, blue-eyed people tended to have kids with other blue-eyed people.
Is it genetically possible for Mexicans to have blue eyes?
So yes, it’s genetically possible for Mexicans (or Engineers, or politicians, or any other race-unrelated category of people) to have any genetic trait. Of course it is — there are no such things as “races” or groups of people that are so distinct from others.
Who are some examples of blue eyed Latins?
Blue eyed latins are of dutch/german heritage, most often. Ricky Martin is good example.

Blond hair, red hair and lighter colored eyes are northern european traits.
Who is the Hispanic guy with blue eyes?
Ummmm…he has European ancestors, like most Hispanics. Moron. The guy could be a genetic anomaly. Mutations do happen, which is how blue eyes originated from our presumably brown-eyed ancestors. Mestizoids can have bleu eye-yi-yi’s, Senor. Chu must be thinking of Mulatoads. He has a (G;G) genotype at rs12913832.
How did I get Lucky to have blue eyes?
I have blue eyes so it seems logical that I’d have children with blue eyes. If my husband, who is Mexican, is around, that statement is followed with one of two things: the question of “how did you get so lucky?” or a statement of “your mom must have really strong genes.”
